How can something as silly and inconsequential as the placement of human-style eyes on talking, anthropomorphic CGI cartoon cars provoke such heated debate?

Because Internet, that’s why. The Internet is a bizarre place, a rich tapestry, as Jason called it, of ideas and cultures and communities and identities. And Pixar’s Cars got caught in the middle of such a debate.

We’re in the right here (we’re ALWAYS right) but reader atomicalex points out this may not be such a great debate to have anyway:

We shouldn’t anthropomorphize machines anyway. They hate it.

I don’t know, has anyone asked them?
